Forgewood Community Centre held its grand opening on Saturday as it gave local residents their first chance to pop in and see the new facilities.

There was a whole host of Christmas themed activities including visitors such as Elsa from Frozen, elves with gift stalls, bouncy castles, DJ, games, free burgers and hotdogs, festive treats and much more.

Among those in attendance was Motherwell and Wishaw MP Marion Fellows.

She said: “I was delighted to attend the grand opening of Forgewood Community Centre.

“It is a fabulous community facility, with highly motivated staff and volunteers and I look forward to supporting it for many years to come.”

The £1.8million centre was officially opened by Princess Anne in July.
